Letter: Raise phone texting age to 21
Placeholder Image
If students and other anti-Constitution minded persons are truly interested in safety, there is one proposal that has not, as yet, been considered. With many people texting while driving, disrupting classes or meetings by use of phones, and generally not paying attention to anything else but a phone, would it not be logical to prohibit anyone under the age of 21 from having a phone capable of texting? We could make them turn in their text-capable phones with little or no compensation (as being proposed by some states for firearms as well as the age of 21 to purchase).
